The Department of Music at the University of Southampton are seeking a permanent, part-time (0.5 FTE, 17.5 hours a week) Senior Teaching Fellow in Composition and Creative Music Technology from 1 September 2022. You will join a vibrant academic community in the Department of Music at Southampton, a centre of exceptional research and teaching in musicology, ethnomusicology, performance, composition, music technology and music business. Given the part time nature of the role you will be encouraged and supported to continue professional composition activities, or indeed other commitments, alongside your work at the University.
You will be a composer of national or emergent international standing in one or more of a range of areas such as composing for screen (film, TV, video games) or electronic music. You will have a detailed understanding and knowledge of music technology in areas such as sound design, recording and mixing and/or coding. You may have a PhD in a related field.
You will be willing to work collaboratively to enrich our curriculum in ways that embody values of respect, curiosity and sustainability. Experience delivering innovative teaching within a higher education context is desired, but not essential. You will contribute to teaching across composition and music technology modules such as ‘Film Composition’ and ‘Interactive! Music in Video Games and Media’. You will also supervise undergraduate and masters composition portfolio projects. You will collaborate with others to develop, shape and innovate our composition and creative music technology curriculum. It is essential that you have strong communication skills, the ability to work with others and are able to adapt to teaching approaches suitable for students with diverse interests and backgrounds.
As a university we aim to create an environment where everyone can thrive and are proactive in fostering a culture of inclusion, respect and equality of opportunity. We particularly welcome applications from women and/or candidates from ethnic minorities who are currently under-represented in our department.
You should submit your completed application form online at www.jobs.soton.ac.uk. Interviews will be held in July 2022.
